Format: Hardcover
This is the best book so far to cover all the essential and state-of-the-art topics regarding earthquake engineering, such as earthquake mechanisms, basic soil dynamics, ground accelerations, Fourier spectrum (this is one of the best books to explain it), seismic hazard assessment, design response spectrum, structural response to strong ground motion and structural dynamics, code design concepts, soil-structural interaction, seismic response of nonstructural elements, base isolations, energy dissipating devices, to name a few. Excellent figures/drawings and examples.

949 pages-->$103. Good deal.

I have read quite a few book in Earthquake Engineering, but none of them had material organized quite like this. Earthquake Engineering is a vast subject which involves geoscience, geotechnical, structural, geography and many more subjects. I can say this one is a complete reference and presents the material in a articulate manner. Author has explained everything in very simple language and can be understood by anyone. It contains more than enough material you need to know about Earthquake Engineering. I would recommend this textbook to all Earthquake Engineering students and professionals.

Dr. Villaverde's treatment of earthquake engineering is in a league of its own. Having read this book cover-to-cover, I can state as an engineer that the author provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject matter which could only be made through many years of research in the field. This book is a veritable treasure trove of scientific information on topics covering soil dynamics, wave propagation, elastic and nonlinear response, general seismology and hazard/risk assessment, response spectrum methods and mitigation. If there's one book the practicing civil/structural engineer should have - it's this one...
